Here is an early 50 cent remainder note from Utica, New York. The only references I have that have information on obsolete currency from New York are the Standard Catalog of United States Obsolete Bank Notes (1782 - 1866) and North American Currency. With scrip like this one, these books fall short. Unfortunately I do not currently have a book that is strictly on the obsolete currency of New York. Since this note is ripped in two it is difficult to identify, especially when searching on the internet falls short with notes as rare as these.
50 cents, Utica, NY
